Thank you for hosting this first group with such quiet proficiency, and creating a container for us to listen deeply, and learn collaboratively. This first session has been an example of inter-weaving between the hosts and the participants that was really beautiful. I am tremendously excited. I imagine this is the right 'place'.
Hi Amy and thanks for the warm welcome! I've really been enjoying listing to the webcasts of the conversations from the Summit. Very inspiring, and I always love Jean Houston...what an inspiring group of women. It means a lot to me hear from my female "elders" as well, knowing that life can and will continue to deepen and that we'll continue to grow and have much to contribute...that's such an important message in our youth obsessed culture. Kindly, Alisa
Good afternoon, Amy. Such a pleasure to get to know you today. Thank you for your generous insights about World Cafe, weDialogue, and partnering with experienced hosts. Looking forward to sharing stories of our endeavors together.
Well, hello Amy! This is my first post. Not sure how it all works as I'm a neophyte! I'm introducing myself here so please bear with me.
I'm a facilitator by background and have been doing this wonderful work for the past 20+ years all over the place. I used to be linked in with the Institute of Cultural Affairs - one of the first global organizations. But we had a parting of ways in philosophy years ago. I still use their methods, mind you. More on that if you are interested.
Thanks for your note to my question, Amy. Hearing you for the first time in the online Café, I now know that your friendliness and hospitable communication there translates just perfectly to email. Thanks for that. I probably will take you up sometime on the opportunity to email you with some additional interests I have with Cafés, methods, online Cafés, etc. I'm truly fascinated with the WC as a vehicle that can speak (no pun intentended! :) to so much of what the world needs at this time. Thanks again.
